Hi guys, some of you may remember me from a couple months past when I had to reformat my entire computer due to a b.exe virus.
Well now, instead of that, my AVG detected a NIG_EAYLNL.EXE trojan in my AppData folder. I looked it up, and as I expected, another name for it was AUTORUN.EXE or SERVICES.EXE (Which also popped up.)
Long story short, my school server apparently had tons of trojan horses on it without any of us knowing, and I was using my flash drive which got infected. The reason why I know it's from the school? I ran a scan during class and there was a huge list of trojans.
When I was running a weekly MBAM scan, AVG popped up with a infections detected window. The file accessed was mbam.exe of course. Once the scan was done, MBAM showed NO infections however. My AVG had four trojans. I had thought I got rid of the services.exe virus a few days ago, but apparently not. I'll post a couple screenshots later on if the infection is detected by AVG again.
So here's my dilemma: How to get rid of SERVICES.EXE/NIG_EAYLNL.EXE/AUTORUN.EXE permanently and effectively, without the need to reformat again.
